Imaginethat you live in a small neighborhood where everyone knows each other, and where you all share some important core values—where your children have playmates nearby, and can grow freely and safely in a caring and stimulating environment.
Picture yourself wandering over to the Common House to pick up your mail, work in the office, do laundry, watch a movie, play with the kids, practice piano, paint a picture, share a meal, or just hang out with family, friends, and neighbors.
Good people are always around to lend a hand if you need help with transportation, yard work, or child care. There’s no need to own your own lawnmower, tractor, rototiller, or snowblower because these are shared by the community.
Your home has lovely light and great views across the fields. It’s comfy-cozy-warm in winter, cool in summer, and super energy-efficient. It's closely connected to the community, and yet still provides all the privacy you need when you need it.
Your town is the vibrant, progressive seaside community of Belfast, at the crossroads of Maine's midcoast—one of the world’s premier sailing areas—where more than 3,500 miles of coastline and 3,000 islands beckon you!
